Molly's Game. Aaron Sorkin. 2017. ⭐️⭐️⭐️
Grating score. Making this a Tale Of Overcoming Adversity was such a miss. The least compelling thread of Bloom's story (the legal case against her) was bizarrely the focus here. Elba is great but we don't need a moral center we need to dive deeper into the darkness. There are so many interesting doors opened that are never walked through. Pity. I will say I left wanting to see a 180+ minute Sorkin movie.
